You need to consume something sweeter than the previous one to get the feeling of sweet again. This is because your taste buds need something more overpowering to get stimulated again.

What do you mean by bland? Soothing or not highly flavored?

Perhaps because your taste buds after eating sweets, sends an electric signal to your brain telling it that the sweetened tea is not sweet enough, hence you get the feeling of bland. It's like drinking alcohol, you need to drink more and more to feel its effect.
